Draw 2D Commercial Floor Plans

A 2D commercial floor plan begins to tell the story of how you’ll fulfill the client’s expectations. A flat representation of the plan, the 2D visualization’s strength is in its ability to show exact measurements of interior walls and spaces. However, the story the 2D floor plan presents is incomplete, which is why you need a 3D visual alongside it.

Ensure Sufficient Space

In offices and other commercial spaces, having sufficient space is key to productivity and everyday usability. Plan extra spaces for bulky office items like commercial printers and servers, and ensure that building users can easily navigate from workspaces to break rooms and boardrooms to bathrooms.

Utilize Multi-purpose Space

Think about the types of businesses that might want to use this commercial space. Would multipurpose rooms and spaces work well for them? Combining areas to create multipurpose space in your commercial building plan can cut down on wasted floor space and unnecessary interior walls and dividers.

Plan the Flow of Traffic

Planning the flow of traffic in commercial building blueprints goes beyond fire safety exits and office clusters. Consider how people working inside the building will move from area to area. Is the trek from the corner office to the conference room too long? Will your current plan have people crossing the open office area and creating unwanted noise and distractions for workers?

Factor in Outdoor Spaces

Commercial spaces often can include anything from retail to office to dining spaces, all of which benefit from outdoor space. These can include dining areas, sitting areas, gardens, and water features. These can all be added using intuitive floor plan software.

Consider Lighting Needs

Picture the lighting inside the building throughout the workday. Plan sufficient windows to let in as much natural light as possible, but remember that workers need to be able to see on cloudy days and at night. And if going green is a priority for your commercial building floor plan, pay attention to which light fixtures you choose.

Add Plenty of Outlets

Day-to-day operations require the use of the internet and a variety of electronic devices. Make sure your floor plan reflects that. How many computers, printers, phone chargers, and copiers will need to be plugged in — and where? A good rule of thumb is to add more outlets than you think is truly necessary.

Commercial Floor Plan Examples

With the right commercial floor plan software, creating a head-turning commercial space doesn’t have to take weeks or months. In just a few minutes, you can generate 2D, 3D, and photorealistic tourable floor plans that put your ideas and skills into focus.
